What Customers Are Saying

David B.

Seattle, WA

In general, there are a lot of low-integrity people dealing in high-end watches looking to take advantage of new/budding collectors who want to buy their first or second serious timepiece. HQ Milton is the opposite of that.

My entire transaction with this group was professional, speedy, and honest, and the price was very fair. HQ Milton is an excellent business. Buy with confidence.


Adam K.

Buying vintage is all about buying the seller. In this case, HQ Milton is the best in the game when it comes to Rolex.

Amazing customer service. Straight shooters. Watch was perfectly described. Thanks guys! Couldn’t be any happier.

Thanks Jacek and your Sales Team for your awesome prices and the exceptional Customer service! I will be buying 2 more Rolex watches from you guys this year. Cheers!

If you are looking at buying a Rolex watch, from a vintage Rolex to a newer Rolex, don’t look anywhere else, I highly recommend that you buy from HQ Milton in San Francisco. You will be glad you did!
